The Nomad Cafe & Guesthouse is a special place in Shuhe Old Town in Lijiang. It caters to vegeterians and serves an ecclectic mix of simple nourishing dishes made with Buddhist care. A generous vegeterian noodle soup topped up with Apple Strudel and cream is an example of a simple yet heavenly meal. The ambiance is serene..there is also a courtyard where one may have Breakfast or a meal in al fresco sunshine. And spending lazy afternoons and post-dinner evenings over coffee or a pot of tea in the warm cafe with its comfortable seats is one way to relax after a hectic day of site-seeing.
The most interesting part of the Nomad Cafe is Peter, the owner who runs the place with his partner. He is a wonderful person..polite to the extreme...inforamtive...and knowledable not only about the surrounds but of esoteric aspects of Buddihism. You can be sure that interesting people come through the Nomad Guesthouse and you can have wonderful conversations far into the night. Peter graciously invites you to share a pot of tea.
Though I did not stay in the Guesthouse, it seemed serne and welcoming from outside. A Buddhist retreat of sorts.
hank you, Peter, for making my stay in Shuhe memorable.
